Love Day in Egypt

4 November is love day in Egypt; of course it is different from 14 February or Valentine's Day.

4 November this year 2009 is the 87th anniversary of discovering the tomb of Tutankhamun by Howard Carter, that very famous tomb no. 62 in the Valley of the Kings or KV62 at the west bank, Luxor.

62 is the last number in VK, as the 62nd tombs took their serial numbers according to the sequence of their discoveries. So, KV62 is the last tomb was discovered in the royal valley.

On 4 November 1922, when Howard Carter found this tomb, he was charmed & asked himself: if all these treasures exist in a tomb of 18 years old king, so what is about tombs of the old pharaohs?!

Carter couldn't answer this question until he died after 17 years from this historical discovery.
